time in recent history that the united states support of israel has become an issue in the u.s. presidential election. the prime minister's office this morning flatly refused to comment on or off the record specifically about the debate but last month they made no qualms about their annoyance with the president of the united states for denying that meeting request with the prime minister of israel at the united nations. and during the debate, vice president biden had to spend a lot of time defending the administration's record with israel. >> they're bebe has been my friend for 39 years. the president met with bebe a dozen times. he spoken to bebe net yaw hue has much as he spleen to anybody. >> the prime minister has made no public stance who he would prefer to see as president but privately made it very clear that he would view a president romney as a much better friend to israel than a second-term president obama, but that is not necessarily a universal feeling here in israel. jamie, there has been a lot of pundits and a also a lot of political figures here in israel who c
for american security doesn't lie with the secretary of state. it lies with the president of the united states, particularly in light of the fact there was two attacks in april and june. one of them was an ied that blew a hole in the wall. there was an attempted assassination of the british ambassador in benghazi and the question is what did the president know, when did know about it and what did he do about it? that's what the president of the united states's responsibility is. you know, martha, there was a sign on harry truman's desk, says the buck stops here. obviously there may be a sign on president obama's desk saying the buck stops over there. the president then went on "the view" and letterman, after it was well-known there was no demonstration. this was a terrorist attack by an al qaeda affiliated group, went on to say, on both of those programs, well, this hateful video, demonstration, et cetera. martha: yeah. >> why didn't know that many days later? why didn't he have that information? because it could be that he had to fly off to las vegas? martha: are the american people going to

the fact that the president of the united states missed 60% of his presidential daily briefings. what was the threat briefing? does the president still receive a daily threat assessment. was this president also receiving that on is ipad or sitting for the brief. did he ask any questions? did he ask what is the situation in libya? how cans with assure our people are safe? i like to know the same thing with respect to secretary clinton. at the end of the day as the senior official in the state department these were her people. they were her responsibility. she also receives daily briefs. supposed to receive daily briefs and i think the american people deserve to understand where the disconnect was and why after having been so sir responsible about that reporting the administration felt the need to cover this up going forward. martha: hillary clinton in terms of the front person speaking about all of this, and back to the seals for a moment, we all can't explain why all of our seals are in a different places around the world. is it disservice to suggest that they were there to protect am

. the president didn't answer that. i don't think anyone thinks that the president of the the united states decides the security detail, but there seems to be a sense that the president wanted to normalize relations, say libya was a safe place when in fact it wasn't. i expect p him to g him to go over that and i expect romney to be very critical on that subject. it will be interesting as to what the president sphopbdz as tpresident responds as to what he knew before with regard to benghazi. there had been an attack back in june. martha: it's what you say the way they wanted to present that area, success and failures to the whole world. let's take a look at the polls. this is the latest poll that takes a look at iowa, and this has the president up by a strong margin, 51-43. wisconsin next up here this also shows the president ae ahead. i've seen other polls that show wisconsin very tight. the gallop poll has the president up by 7. what do you think about that. >> i think one of those is wrong. i don't which one of those it is. i find it hard to believe that romney is leading by seven points
